ALL SAINTS All Hits (2001 UK 11-track CD album featuring all their greatest hits including Never Ever Pure Shores Bootie Call plus Twentyfourseven - Artful Dodger & Melanie Blatt)
In light of the un-harmonious five years Melanie, Shaznay, Nicole and Natalie spent together as All Saints, perhaps this anthology should have been titled "All Fights" instead of the more agreeable All Hits. Despite having two massive hit singles in 2000 (with "Pure Shores" and "Black Coffee"), and the release of their second album (Saints and Sinners), the girls' rows were viewed more newsworthy than their continued chart success. From early tunes such as "I Know Where It's At", right through to their appropriately titled final release "All Hooked Up" the quartet produced some of the catchiest hooks in pop. For both their studio albums, they recruited the hippest producers of the time, including Nellee Hooper, Cameron McVey and William Orbit. These "top bods" merged the girls' soulful vocals with the trendiest beats, producing classics such as "War of Nerves" and "Bootie Call". The best of these albums and more are included on All Hits. Also included is Mel's solo collaboration with Artful Dodger ("Twentyfourseven") and two powerful new tracks penned and performed by Shaznay, which are sneakily hidden at the end of a bonus remix of "Pure Shores". "I Feel You" is an epic five minuter, sounding similar to Saints's classic "Never Ever" but with the other three's harmonies being replaced by a gospel choir. The second Shaz track "Dreams" is an Orbit style pop-trip composition that strangely (or perhaps predictably) echoes "Pure Shores". The group may have split but their sound lives on--in more ways than one. --John Galilee

The All Saints collection 'All Hits' spans the best of just 2 amazing classic pop albums! This is a collection you can listen throughout the duration and not feel the need to skip any tracks. Nearly all of these songs are still played on radio and music channels which is pretty rare seeing as not many pop acts from 5 years ago can say they are a still a regular fixture on radio etc.
All Saints, at the time were so different from their other pop counterparts, they delivered pop with a dirty, slick urban feel and paved the way for future girl groups such as Sugababes, who themselves are yet to release a poor album or single.
The album is started with my personal All Saints favourite 'Pure Shores', the backing music, the harmonies, everything about this song is pure perfection.
This is followed by 'Never Ever', possibly one of the best pop ballads of all time, this was easily the Saints' biggest hit spending over 20 weeks on the UK chart alone and smashing into the US Billboard Top 10!
From there on the hits just keep coming! The best of which are the slick, sexy cover of Red Hot Chili Peppers' classic 'Under The Bridge', debut single 'I Know Where It's At' and the quite simply AMAZING 'Black Coffee'.
All Saints only released 8 singles (5 of which #1's) so the inclusion of Melanie Blatt's collaboration with Artful Dodger on the mesmerising 'Twentyfourseven' and the 'Pure Shores' remix are not too surprising but also don't tamper with the flow of the album.
Greatest Hits collections are a favourite with a lot of people and 'All Hits' is definately one of the best I've ever heard.
Yet if you don't have either of the previous All Saints records (maybe your ex took them in a nasty break up or something) then maybe this is the album for you. All the hits are here. "Pure Shores" and "Black Coffee" (both produced by William Orbit) still sound refreshingly different, you'll still find yourself bopping along to "I Know Where It's At" and "Lady Marmalade", whilst "Never Ever" will always be a classic ballad.
The album is beefed up with a couple of remixes and yes there are a couple of hidden new songs (which are penned by Shaznay at her best), but if you have the previous two albums you'll be wasting your money. If fact if you don't have the previous two album you'd be much better off getting them instead......
